Re: Windows UDP packet generator software?

iperf might be able to do what you need and there are Windows builds available, but I'm not sure if it has a mode where 
it's not flooding the network trying to test maximum speed.  Is there a reason that standard ICMP pings aren't 
appropriate if you just want packet loss info?  Obviously every platform worth using has ping built in.

The goal of what I am doing is to test some network convergence impact

easier if I could) and switches and/or routers in between.

So, I thought there must be some simple utility out there that can
just start spewing out UDP packets to the other side at a certain time
interval and I can look at packet loss via what arrives on the other
side with wireshark on the PC.

I found hping but it seems to be outdated and I can't get it to work
on my windows boxes.

Anyone have any suggestions?
